Handbook of Social Work in Child and Adolescent Sexual Abuse by Carolyn Hilarski
Book DescriptionThe enlightening collection of new approaches to understanding sexual abuse When sexual abuse occurs, helping those directly affected can be a difficult and convoluted task. The Handbook of Social Work in Child & Adolescent Sexual Abuse is a comprehensive guide that provides the latest information on assessment, management, prevention, and policy. Through insightful and accessible discussions, this collection of essays encompasses the full spectrum of child and adolescent sexual abuse to shed needed light on an affecting issue. This innovative text is the up-to-date source for unique and compassionate ways of supporting and treating survivors. The increased attention given to child sexual abuse in recent years has revealed how little we know about this tragedy. The Handbook of Social Work in Child & Adolescent Sexual Abuse is the practical compendium that covers the already existing information regarding violence against children and delves into practical methods for treating those immediately affected by it. From its historical place in society to contemporary issues of prevention that have only recently come to light, contributors examine essential details in-depth and provide concise, empirical directions for short- and long-term support. Also included is the important and newly-available assessment and treatment information focusing on ethnicity, gender, and comorbid influences as they relate to family member treatment. Among the topics discussed in the Handbook of Social Work in Child & Adolescent Sexual Abuse are: * historical views of and responses to sexual abuse * risk and protective factors * life stage consequences * theories of family dysfunction * comorbidity and attachment * intrafamilial abuse * the non-family offender * current empirical assessment methods * approaches to treatment in children * approaches to treatment in adolescents * neurological effects of abuse * treatment for the non-offending caregiver * the role of the internet and other media * policy and practice implications * the prevalence and consequences of abuse * new methods of abuse prevention and child protection * the etiology of sexual offending in an attachment framework * and much more!The Handbook of Social Work in Child & Adolescent Sexual Abuse is an essential resource for educators, medical practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, family therapists, and students, researchers, and academics in the field of social work.
